This week I am Grateful for things just as they are.
Like Muddy Boots
And Our Own Fly Boats
For My Knight in Shining Armor
And For Trying on Hats
For Moments of Solitude
And Abandoned Structures That Make My Mind Wander
Mostly of course, for these two little people, who I will always love just as they are.
I am reminding myself to be grateful for what is in front of me no matter how it was created.
And So, This Week I Am Grateful For
Amazing And Hand Crafted Gift Packages
And The Fun That Old Toys Bring
For Making Bread With Friends
And For Candy Not Consumed
For A Father Enjoying Nap Time
And For Energy That Abounds
With this goal to practice more gratitude in my daily life, I try to find it in what is in front of me.
And everyday, it is these two fresh and organic faces:
And really, there is nothing to be more grateful for.
With my commitment to create more joy for myself and my family in 2012, I intend to spend time intentionally reflecting on gratitude. Starting today.
Today I am grateful for superheroes
and first bikes.
For breakfast in bed
and the waters’ calm.
For Owen’s love of running
and brotherly love.
And finally, for all of the moments that I may not be able to recall, but are unquestionably a part of me.
